Roman smudges.

A comprehensive book loaded with well-documented examples. The color plates are fine; however, everything else is black and white and cross-eyed tiny. (I guess I could buy a loop!) I realize Cambridge UP didn't put this out as a coffee-table book, but the examples should be large enough to enjoy the details. In its present format, this is a scholarly text illustrated with a collection of Roman smudges. Very frustrating.

A Well-Written Book Resplendent with Color

I took a class on Pompeii and I read the entire book for the class. The illustrations are mostly in color, which is helpful and nice-looking. Overall, a concise and accessible survey of Roman painting, most of which was preserved in Pompeii.
